Thank you Jennifer.


I would like to take this opportunity to remind people in Oregon that some
of us live in a world of fake information. This information is created,
published and taught by a racist colonial system that hates People of
Color.

Fake news is directly related to Culture and Information Literacy as
described here:

We need to expand this notion of "fake news" and talk about all the fake
information that surrounds us.


Respectfully,



Max Macias
